Learn some of the ins and outs of how wildlife biologists capture, band, and release geese and other birds at this June 20 event.

No live birds will be captured.

At this event, attendees will learn how to provide food, water and shelter for wildlife through planting and find out which plants are best for birds and pollinators.
